America is an ageing country. Unlike a few decades ago, the fastest growing segment of the American population consists of those over seventy years of age. As the 'Baby Boom' segment of our population ages, and advances in medical care prolong life expectancies, the graying of America will accelerate. This significant and growing segment of American society presents increasing and challenging problems related to housing, health care, financial security, familial relationships, recreational activities, educational programs, and job opportunities for seniors. To deal with such challenges, our nation has often turned to the government--especially the federal government--to solve the problems of older Americans. But government solutions neither keep pace with these needs, nor do they adapt to emerging sociological norms. In fact, such solutions have been inefficient and overly expensive.

The 60 Plus Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3)* non-partisan educational organization formed to identify these problems and needs, and to seek alternative solutions developed through the private sector, financed through the free enterprise system, which enhance the quality of life, dignity, and security of American senior citizens. The Foundation brings together segments of the public, representatives of civic institutions, leaders in private enterprise, and specialists in educational disciplines to restore the vigor, intentions and beliefs of our founding fathers, as those intentions and beliefs relate to senior issues. We work to rekindle a nation and a culture that assists, supports, and provides opportunities to its senior citizens, while respecting the Constitutional right of every citizen to live in dignity and thrive in a democratic society, free from government reliance.
